Hundreds participate in Third Street Bridge Walk

The chill of fall was in the air as hundreds of people turned out for the 4th annual Third Street Bridge Walk in Grand Haven on Monday. "I think a lot of people are here because it is a beautiful day,' said Mayor Roger Bergman, who helped to organize the event. The nearly 4-mile trek took walkers from the Third Street bridge on Harbor Island, down the Grand Haven boardwalk and to the end of the south pier. Once the walk was finished, people were able to walk to Chinook Pier, where there were prizes and ice cream provided by Temptations.

Bergman said the Labor Day event allowed neighbors to connect during the walk.

“There’s a lot of people that know each other and they’re out here with their friends and families and dogs,” Bergman said.

Walkers also had a chance to take a tour of the foghouse located at the end of the south pier.

Bergman said by opening up the foghouse for walkers participating in the bridge walk, it allowed for increased awareness about the facility and efforts to improve it.
